Panther Road Toll Hits High in 2012
 
Road deaths were tied Sunday, with panther 17 being hit by a truck in Orange County Nth of the Caloosahatchee river . Uncollared male about 3yo. Panther road mortality reached a high of 17 in 2009.

It didn't end there, on Tues a female panther was found dead close to the Tamiami Trail in Big Cypress National Preserve, she was collared & caring for two 9mth old kits. It remains to be seen if they are mature enough to take care of themselves, they do have a chance at this stage of their lives.
